Conditional Transgenics

Date

May 24 - 25 2022

Time

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Cost

£600.00

Transgenic mice are an important resource to understand gene function, regulation, and expression. This course is designed to introduce the principles behind conditional genetic modifications, experimental. design and analysis

Who is it for? 

  • Animal Facility Managers
  • Researchers with previous knowledge of advanced mouse genetics

After the course you will be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of conditional mutagenesis
  • Identify the advantages and challenges of these systems
  • Plan for restricting the expression of a transgene
  • Analyse recombinase (Cre) expression

Recommended level of previous knowledge required for this course: Advanced Mouse Genetics
